are the voyages of the Klingon defence force vessel I.K.S.
Gorkon. It's mission: To explore strange new worlds...
to seek out new life and new civilisations... and to conquer
them for the greater glory of the Klingon Empire...
this is an interesting concept, and one that should have been
looked into years ago. A new slant on the Star Trek
Universe, and one that will appeal to most fans - take the
Trek Universe we all know, but look at it from the
point of view of the flagship of the Klingon Empire and its
is around six months after the events that unfolded in Deep
Space Nine's final screen episode, What You Leave Behind,
and Captain Klag and the crew of the new Chancellor class
Klingon vessel Gorkon venture into the unexplored Kavrot Sector,
they stumble upon a strange planet populated by the Children
of San-Tarah, a powerful warrior culture, who offer Klag a
challenge he cannot refuse. The Gorkon crew and the San-Tarah
will engage in several martial contests. If the Klingons lose,
they will go and never trouble the planet again - but if they
are victorious, the San-Tarah will cede themselves to the
Empire and Klag will have single-handedly conquered an entire
not the most original of premises, but it serves its purpose
well to allow us to be eased into this series - although readers
of the Diplomatic Implausibility (TNG) and The
Brave and the Bold novels will already have met Klag and
his trusty crew. It's hard not to warm to the main characters
- although I have some concern that it won't be long before
the writers of this series start to humanise
the them as the TV writers did with the Ferrengi (Quark, Nog
and Rom) and the Cardassians (Garek). Once you have regular
characters, you can't help but do this and it may take away
some of the mystery surrounding the Klingons.
said that, I am really looking forward to seeing how this
promising series evolves. It has very encouraging beginnings.
